איידי! סיליבראמוס | Айде! Селебрамос | Ayde! Selebramos — a Ladino adaptation of Mordkhe Rivesman’s “Oy Khanike” by Isaac Gantwerk Mayer

https://opensiddur.org/?p=53581 איידי! סיליבראמוס | Айде! Селебрамос | Ayde! Selebramos — a Ladino adaptation of Mordkhe Rivesman's "Oy Khanike" by Isaac Gantwerk Mayer 2023-12-07 19:02:09 An original Ladino adaptation of the song "Oy Khanike" (derived from the Yiddish poem of the same name by Mordkhe Rivesman) also known in English as "Oh Chanukah" or in Hebrew as "Y'mei ha-Ḥanukka." I'm aware that the custom of spinning tops was not originally a Sefaradi one. So sue me, I was looking for something to rhyme with "libertaḏ." I've included the Rashi script, the Aki Yerushalaim orthography, and (as an added bonus) the Cyrillic transcription used by the Jews of the Balkans.
